July at the Book Place

The month of July will feature all Art books around the store at 50% off; there are lots of beautiful books to consider!  

For those lazy summer afternoons or books to take on vacation, gather up Science Fiction/Fantasy at half off, or check out the entire collection of Popular Fiction Wall. Books are priced at just $2 each.

 

We’ve done a bit of rearranging our Clearance Room, and now have a permanent home for $1.00 books, which are typically past bestsellers, proven winners, or popular titles from across all categories. Come load up for the days ahead. 

Book Donation Info

We are always in need of gently-used materials to keep our selection fresh. We are in particular need of the non-Fiction categories: History, Biography, Military, Science, etc. However, we ask that you check the Donations Guidelines before packing your donation, as many categories have limits (such as, nothing published more than 5 years ago). We accept donations on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, 10am-3pm, at our large rollup door behind the store. Pull into the parking lot and look for us, where we’ll quickly screen your donation and provide a receipt if you like. If you are donating more than 2-3 bags/boxes, please phone ahead (415-209-0212) to check if we have room to take your donation, or if you have questions about anything you wish to donate. Thanks in advance!
